Are you trying to do that? or does the error come out of nowhere?

Why are you trying to remove Plymouth? Doing this will most likley break your OS.

 

 

 

 

Plymouth is an application that runs very early in the boot process (even before the root filesystem is mounted!) that provides a graphical boot animation while the boot process happens in the background.

If you are trying to disable the splash screen at bootup, you can edit the /etc/default/grub file, or use the Plymouth Manager GUI to disable the splash screen so you'll get the scrolling list of kernel and init actions at startup instead. Not sure you need to remove plymouth, although I don't think it would break anything if you did.

Plymouth can't be removed from Ubuntu or Mint without taking half the system with it. It's got tentacles all over the whole OS!

EDIT.
In my opinion.
OK It can be removed and it wont break the OS but you would really need to know what you are doing.
 
I wouldnt risk it.

Why on earth did they do that? :o  Many distros allow you to remove the splashscreen completely.

 

In that case, the only choice is to disable it.

Yes it would seem so.
